Re: “Garrison Keillor may have left 'A Prairie Home Companion,' but he's still telling stories

Garrison I've been a fan since first hearing A Prairie Home Companion on WRPI in the mid 70s. Loved the humor, the music and the politics. What happened? Retirement turn you into a Republican? When the House sells out for a $110,000 take, what's your share? Call me an idealist, but you disappoint me.

Re: “Why Thomas Ravenel lashed out at Proof's Craig Nelson

Charleston Society And Others.
...this is entertaining for those who follow Reality TV things and enjoy
the cliquish social cults of Southerners and those who afflict them.
13 years is a long time to hold a grudge by a large group of people.
He may be so slighted, Thomas Ravenel may have a class-action suit.
Talk about discrimination in the White Social Classes and here is your
proof! The whole thing is badly handled with public rants and press
coverage. In the good old day of Civilized Charleston one just smiled
and ''carried on'' with good manners or just shot them at the Yacht Club.

Re: “Why Thomas Ravenel lashed out at Proof's Craig Nelson

Sometimes boorish behavior and bad manners for many years gets a comeuppance. Nobody likes a nasty drunk - especially the bartenders. J Chris has provided us with a great map that should be posted at the Visitors center. Mr. Nelson is a gentleman, Mr. Ravenel never was.

I was going to try it, but after seeing reviews I think not, especially if the stuff is greasy

Re: “Why Thomas Ravenel lashed out at Proof's Craig Nelson

K, no need to apologize. Let's get on the same page this year. In fact, I'll even help you out. I have a hot tip that City of Charleston Finance Director Donna Emerson recently got into a spat with Stars Rooftop & Grill Room management over how many stars can actually be seen from the restaurant's rooftop.

Follow that lead my child and you'll be on your way to the top of Charleston's food & bev writing scene. You may even be the next Hanna Raskin....'s intern.

Re: “Why Thomas Ravenel lashed out at Proof's Craig Nelson

Ron,
You are so right. I'd get much more out of life by following your approach of commenting on everything we publish rather than writing it.
Thanks for the help.
K

Re: “Why Thomas Ravenel lashed out at Proof's Craig Nelson

You and Barna have been complicit in glamorizing this manchild's behavior for years. And now we need a column about a pissing contest between irrelevant people arguing about something totally pointless? Do you ever stop to think maybe you should be doing something else with your life?

Re: “Mayor Tecklenburg's honeymoon period is over

As John Tecklenburg begins his second year as Mayor, Dwayne Green's question, "Where do we go from here?," is a timely and fair one. In racial relations, the Mayor has the opportunity to make progress that's often been promised -- well before Tecklenburg took office -- but not delivered. The Illumination Project for better police-community relations was inaugurated under former mayor Riley's administration, but Tecklenburg can be instrumental in making this undertaking an action program that delivers results. As one part of IP, Police Chief Mullen is leading the way in the Charleston Police Department building a first-class, interactive website that really engages the community. We need much more data and other information about crime and prevention, and the website should be the place for the local citizenry to find everthing and use it to help develop solutions that make police and community true partners. If Tecklenburg can make the Illumination Project an action program that delivers results, he'll have gone a long way to answering Dwayne Green's New Year question.
